For the first time, a Seaslug missile roars away from HMS Devonshire's twin launcher. At this early stage of firing, the boosts can be seen still attached to the weapon, May 1962.

Crewmen on USS Birmingham (CL-62) play fire hoses on the burning USS Princeton (CVL-23), as their ship comes alongside to assist in damage control measures, 24 October 1944. An onboard explosion aboard Princeton sprayed shrapnel across Birmingham's topsides, 239 men died, 408 were wounded, and the bodies of four were never recovered. With Princeton's fires unable to be controlled, she was evacuated and left to sink.
